The intrig ue
Ball at the Savoy
On their return from a one-year honeymoon that took them all over the world, Madeleine and Aristide de Faublas return happy and in love to Nice where they are welcomed by their friends and their servants Bébé and Archibald. But a few hours after their return barely, Aristide is caught up by his past of reveler and seducer. A telegram informs him of the presence in Nice of a former conquest, the dancer Tangolita, who announces her presence that very evening at the annual Savoy ball.

The ball is in full swing when Daisy reveals her identity and publicly announces her engagement to Mustafa Bey. Madeleine, for her part, declares to the applause of the crowd, to have cheated on her husband. Separation from Aristide seems inevitable. Instead of the expected lawyer comes his representative, Célestin, who refuses to provide the slightest detail of his date at the Savoy.
